FAQs

What is a bicycle kitchen?

A bicycle kitchen is a community bike project that provides a space where cyclists can get access to work stands and good quality tools, along with support to help them do everything on their bike from simple maintenance to a complete rebuild.

What equipment and facilities do you have?

We have three bike work stands, a complete tool station that provides most of the core tools you will need plus a collection of more advanced tools (e.g. wheel truing stands).

We can always use extra equipment and donations of bicycles/parts so please get in touch if you have anything that you would like to donate or discuss.

What if I don’t know anything about bike maintenance?

Southampton Bike Kitchen is the place for you!

Please feel free to come along and learn the basics; from changing an inner tube to adjusting your brakes or truing a wheel.

Are you a bike repair shop?

No, we are a community bike project that helps you fix your bike.

Don’t worry, there will always be a friendly face to get you set up and guide you.
